questions over whether the obama administration is overstepping its bounds. they're among the most controversial and secretive weapons in the war on terror, unmanned drones, used to strike alcoh al qaeda targets worldwide. under fire after nbc news obtained a memo that includes deadly strikes against u.s. citizens that are operational leaders of al qaeda are a lawful act of national self defense. among those targeted, an war al alawki, killed in yemen in 2011. >> it is a chilling dumt document. it sets out the government's intentions to kill american citizens. >> reporter: demanding more transparency about the strikes and is expected to target john brennan during his cia confirmation hearings, beginning tomorrow. president obama on tuesday urged congress to act. >> they should at least pass a smaller package of spending cuts and tax reforms that would delay economically damaging effect of the sequester for a few more months. >> reporter: if you think of it as a t-bone stake, the sequester is like a butcher's knife, lobbing off a big piece. republicans want to avoid the cuts but dis
. what is the obama administration's approach to border security? guest: it's interesting because it's becoming very come plegs. there is a strong border security to the imflation reform bill that's being discussed and to the proposal that was put together by the gang of eight senators who sat down and came up with a new proposal. their border security component is somewhat specific and their whole immigration reform package hinges on securing that border. the obama administration proposal has more to do with sbror enforcement of how we enforce verification of employment. the fact that people are here in the united states legally and that kind of thing, and is less specific on border element of that. now, to me, the whole hinge centers around what is a secure border. what is border security? and in fact, there is no definition. it's subject to different interpretation s and what they are doing in the senate proposal which i think is going to be the one that goes forward and is tweaked and debated and discussed, they want to put together a commission in border security. and it's this
